After seeing his Road to WrestleMania take a detour at WWE Elimination Chamber due to his ouster from the bout at the hands of Braun Strowman, John Cena somberly reflected on his legendary career on Raw Talk while seemingly turning the gears in his head, looking for another opportunity to perform on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Monday night on Raw, Cena defiantly claimed that he will never give up in his quest to make it to New Orleans. The free agent declared that he would be heading to SmackDown LIVE tonight to take advantage of The Land of Opportunity that Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan have created. WWE.com has learned that the 16-time World Champion will be kicking off tonight's show. But just how does Cena intend to make sure his Road to WrestleMania runs through SmackDown LIVE?

Last week, Ruby Riott pinned Becky Lynch in Six-Woman Tag Team action, getting a title opportunity at WWE Fastlane in the process. That didn’t stop the Riott Squad leader from calling out one of the champion’s closest allies, Naomi, promising to knock her lights out.

Naomi is more than ready to take on Riott in singles competition, though she’ll have to be weary of Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan lurking at ringside. Will Riott make good on her promise, or will Naomi make her feel the glow?

Last week’s SmackDown LIVE went off the air with Baron Corbin standing tall, having planted Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn into the canvas with End of Days after the two tried to attack him following his grueling loss to WWE Champion AJ Styles. Though he was not victorious, The Lone Wolf sent a message that he will be a serious threat during the WWE Championship Fatal 5-Way at WWE Fastlane.

Corbin will get another opportunity at payback tonight on SmackDown LIVE when he goes one-on-one with Zayn. Will Zayn be able to escape the wrath of The Lone Wolf?

The New Day defeated Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin last week to earn a SmackDown Tag Team Title opportunity at WWE Fastlane. Standing between Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods and a fifth reign as tag team champions are their longtime rivals, The Usos.

Last year, these teams engaged in a legendary rivalry that tore the house down at several events, culminating in a vicious war inside Hell in a Cell, which Jimmy & Jey won. They reached a truce, showing respect for each other before going their separate ways, but fate has brought them back together on The Road to WrestleMania. The squads will come face-to-face tonight, but what will happen in the latest chapter of their rivalry? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE!
